For London A Cappella Festival 2017 which took place in January we were pleased to support The Choir with No Name as our chosen charity partner.
UK registered charity, The Choir with No Name runs choirs for homeless and marginalised people in cities across Britain.
‘We are thrilled to be the official charity partner for London A Cappella Festival 2017. Being involved in such a vibrant and exciting event is amazing for us, and to be amongst people who truly understand the power of singing to change lives is wonderful. Our choirs for homeless and marginalised people are built on the premise that singing makes you feel good, and that everyone deserves the opportunity to experience the joy of singing together regardless of their circumstances. Support from the festival and those who attend will help us keep our choirs singing well into the future.’ Emma Broomfield, CWNN London Choir Manager
About the charity
The charity runs choirs for the most marginalised members of our society. The choirs rehearse weekly – and enjoy a hot dinner together afterwards – and perform at venues across Britain including Royal Festival Hall, National Portrait Gallery and Brighton Dome.
Harnessing the many benefits of singing, the charity offers members the sanctuary and stability of a weekly rehearsal and helps to build confidence, personal skills and nurture long-lasting friendships – helping members to tackle the challenges they face in everyday life. The choirs have reached over 750 people affected by homelessness in the last year. choirwithnoname.org
